Long slow run: good and steady, although I nearly stopped at 11.5 again. Not because i was exhausted (like last week) but tired and sick of running in circles trying to get to 12, and running partner stopped at 10 as she continues to heal from injury. I figure this partial run thing that we’ll do together until Grandma’s in June will be good because the end of runs is normally where I have to work the hardest with my brain. As I’ll be doing Grandma’s alone, I need to work on leaning into discomfort and finding peace of mind as it tells me to “stop! ”.
Has anyone tried using hypnosis to quiet this part of the brain?
New book. Liking it a lot. Not struggling with being an “older” runner, but surprised to find myself labeled as one…..and accepting it.
